Is CTC Monthly Payment Renewed? Eligibility, Payout Date and Status!

The IRS might bring back monthly payments of $250 to $300 for the Child Tax Credit (CTC) in US households. This credit aids working families, reduces child poverty, and boosts children’s welfare across the nation, benefiting guardians of children under 17.

Is CTC Monthly Payment Renewed?

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has recently confirmed the potential reinstatement of monthly payments ranging from $250 to $300 for the Child Tax Credit (CTC) in American households. 

The IRS’s Child Tax Credit (CTC) supports working families, decreases child poverty, and enhances children’s welfare nationwide, benefiting parents and guardians of children under 17, regardless of income.

Proposed changes under the new budget would increase the credit from $2,000 to $3,600 for children under six and to $3,000 for children aged six and above.

CTC Monthly Payment Eligibility

The Child Tax Credit (CTC) is a tax credit available to qualifying taxpayers in the United States who have dependent children. 

Child Qualifications:

  • Age: At the end of the tax year, the child must be under the age of 17.
  • Relationship: The child must be your son, daughter, stepchild, eligible foster child, brother, sister, stepbrother, stepsister, half-brother, half-sister, or a descendant of any of these (e.g., grandchild, niece, or nephew).
  • Support: The child cannot have provided more than half of their own financial support during the year.
  • Residency: The child must have lived with you for more than half the tax year (exceptions exist for special circumstances like birth, death, temporary absences, kidnapping, or divorced/separated parents).
  • Citizenship: The child must be a U.S. citizen, U.S. national, or U.S. resident alien.

Taxpayer Qualifications:

  • Tax Filing Status: You must file a tax return, even if your income is below the filing threshold.
  • Full Credit: You qualify for the full amount of the credit if your Modified Adjusted Gross Income (MAGI) falls below these thresholds:
    • $200,000 for single filers and Heads of Household
    • $400,000 for Married Filing Jointly
  • Phased Out Credit:  If your MAGI exceeds the limits above, the credit amount you can claim starts to decrease.
    • For every $1,000 your income is over the threshold, the credit is reduced by $50.
  • Minimum Earned Income Requirement: There’s a minimum earned income requirement to claim the refundable portion of the CTC in tax years 2024 and 2025. You must have earned at least $2,500 in income.

CTC Monthly Payment Status 

To check the status of your $300 Direct Deposit Child Tax Credit, follow these steps:

  • Visit the official IRS website at and access the “Get My Payment” tool.
  • Log in to your existing IRS account with your credentials. You may need to make an account if you don’t already have one.
  • Once logged in, locate the dashboard or payment status section of your account.
  • Enter your Social Security Number (SSN) and tax ID as prompted.
  • The system will then display the status of your Direct Deposit Child Tax Credit payment, including the payment date and method.

Factors affecting the CTC Monthly Payments

Some factors that affect the amount of the CTC monthly payments are:

  • Filing Status: Your filing status (single, married filing jointly, etc.) impacted the income thresholds for receiving the full credit amount.
  • Adjusted Gross Income (AGI): The CTC was a partially refundable credit. The amount you received was based on your AGI.
  • Those with lower AGI received the full credit, while those exceeding specific limits received a reduced amount or no credit at all.
  • Number of Qualifying Children: The CTC amount increased per qualifying child, with a maximum age of 16.
  • Direct Deposit vs. Mail: While the timing of the payments wasn’t directly affected, opting for direct deposit ensured faster receipt compared to mailed checks.
  • Tax Filing Status: Your filing status (single, married filing jointly, etc.) played a role in determining the income thresholds for full eligibility.
  • Processing Delays: In rare cases, the IRS might experience delays in processing your CTC payments due to technical issues or verification procedures.
